Work Completed: Fuel distributor rebuilt. Throttle body replaced with larger one from a Golf Mk2; inlet port widened to match the throttle body port size. New gearbox oil seal and CV boots. Sunroof mechanism repaired. Front end replaced with Euro-spec grille, front valance, front air dam, and headlights. Federal bumpers replaced with Euro-spec units. Air conditioning system upgraded to R134A retrofit. New interior. Full body respray to original black colour.
Notes: Second Golf GTI purchased in the series. Fitted with original parcel shelf, which is considered rare. Mike mistakenly referred the car as a 1984 model when it was actually a 1983 model. In order to make the grille fit with the Rabbit’s original front end, Ant made filler plates using leftover steel plates and welded them to the front wings. Sold at asking price.
